Ron Paul, known by many for his dedicated following and his desire to shrink the government, declared Monday morning that he would also axe the Executive Branch if elected.
Libertarians are known for wanting smaller government and more rights for states. True to his roots, Ron Paul declared that "If I'm elected president, I will abolish the Executive Branch".
The Washington establishment has reacted with strong disapproval to Paul's wishes. The overwhelming feeling is that the President as well as the Executive Branch as a whole is a required piece of the government. Congress fears that without the President, they would lose their main reason for getting so little done.
Only time will tell if Ron Paul gets the nomination or becomes President. But, if he does, he may be the last.
